1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I can size down a 1/2 size from 341 to 337.

    Is that because the 337 is wider? My Belgraves on the 337 last are about as narrow as I can go, so, if true, sounds like the 341 last is not in my future.

    ^^The widths at the widest point are about the same at their widest (outsole). The length of the 337 is only 1/8" smaller between 9.5(337) and 10(341), but on my feet there is a noticeable difference with the 341 feeling noticeably larger.

    You may be able to take the same size as your Belgrave. If the Westfields were a 9.5, I would be in Heaven.

    Question regarding recrafts: When shell cordovan footwear are sent for recrafting/refurbishing, is it possible to treat the shell cordovan uppers to the original dark brown color?

    Lacing on bals in general should be in a shallow "V" shape, just as yours are, suggesting the appropriate width. Looks perfect.

    No need to be apologetic about black shoes in general or black captoes specifically. Everyone who wears professional business dress needs at least one black captoe bal IMO.

    What's the best option C&J offers for a plain black captoe? I want something sleek, but still classic enough to be used through the full gauntlet of suit-wearing occasions. I can count on one finger how many times I need a suit in a year, so I need something versatile yet clean and basic.

    +1 - either the Hallam on the 348 last from the Benchgrade range, or the Audley on the 337 last from the Handgrade range.

    Good morning, without seeing the shoes, it is very difficult to comment. So with a pinch of salt... It could be the product you are using to clean them or it could be that the shells themselves are darker today than they were 4 years ago or it could be sun damage... Years of wear will slowly take the colour out of the shoes as with most natural materials.

    You can always send them back to our factory via a retail shop to have them re-darkened although I think think they look great after 4 years of wear.

    Hope this helps and glad to hear your enjoying our shoes.

    I for one love the fact that someone from C&J contribute to this thread. Just another example of great customer service from this great brand

    Just a question for the C&J representative in this thread. Will the Granada be available only in C&H stores or will it be available to other retailers?

    Thanks.

    CandJONLINE do you recommend the same size for 337 as 358 last?

    It looks like the Granada is available in navy and tan at Barneys.
